Rumored Firmware Update Will Bring Several New Features to the Canon 7D

Firmware updates roll out all the time, but rarely are they worthy enough to take serious notice of. A new firmware version for the Canon EOS 7D, however, may bring with it several new features that have the rumor mill spinning at the moment. According to Canon Rumors, a couple of days ago a Canon CPN site briefly posted details on firmware version 2 for the 7D before realizing their mistake and taking them down, but not before plenty of people caught a glimpse.

The new firmware, which should be right around the corner, will bring a slew of new features including: increased maximum RAW burst to 26 frames (from 15), in-camera RAW file conversion and editing, ability to rate images, jpeg resizing, support for the GP-E2 GPS unit, manual audio level control in video mode, and several more. Head over to Canon Rumors for all of the details, and if you have a 7D get ready to love your camera just a teensy bit more.

    I can already shoot 26 continuous RAW frames with my 7D before the buffer chokes using my 600x/90mbs memory cards…. But still, the rest of the features are worth the update. wooo.

    so crap – that’s why so many people use 7D cameras and other APS-C sensor cameras… because they’re so crap.

    riiight. that’s why films like 27 Hours, Black Swan and Avengers used Canon 7D … because they’re shit. You certainly told me! shame on me…

     I actually chose the 7D over the 5D mk II without looking at the price. But hey, haters gonna hate. You go shoot art with your Leica M9.

     If  you think that photography is just about expensive gear, well in my opinion you don’t have a clue of what photography is :-)

    Well to be honest Kozmo has a point APS-C sensor is just not up to scratch if you using Full-Frame lenses, no matter how you look at it its just inferior.

    But its in no means crap, and has its audience

    by Kozmo’s standard, everybody should use a medium format for everything…

    I wonder why Canon never bothered to put an intervalmeter built in, I’ve lost my rather expensive remote and now had to resort to clicking manually for time-lapse.
